+1Stewart Copeland's drum beats. Some of them sound simple but are deceptively difficult in their preciseness and sharpness - and the fact he mixes up what would be a regular time signature. Some of the songs by The Police sound easy to play when listening to them until you want to play them the way Stewart played them. Also, I've always had trouble with learning how to twirl my sticks.
Yes, and the bridge with the tom tom pattern is a bit tricky as well, I really don't know exactly how he played that, but maybe they're overdubbed?The Beatles - Something.
It's so simple sounding but so hard to play right. The groove in the verse is just bass drum and snare, you really have to hold back because the tempo is deceptively slow.
Could well be, Lady Madonna has a brushes snare jazz pattern all the way through with the straight feel drums on another track, one panned hard left and one panned hard right. Again no hi hat on the main groove just bass drum and snare. It's really cool.Yes, and the bridge with the tom tom pattern is a bit tricky as well, I really don't know exactly how he played that, but maybe they're overdubbed?
